Pressure plate disfunction
« on: December 12, 2007, 07:46:00 am »

Pressure plates set to trigger on water level 6-7 becomes broken (malfunction) when triggered to often:

It should open/close floodgates on the left and it's worked, but after few cycles it becomes broke!

I have a save of that (and possibly -- not sure also a copy of save before it broke)

he greatest programming project of all took six days; on the seventh day the programmer rested. We''ve been trying to debug the *&^%$#@ thing ever since. Moral: design before you implement.

Does the water recede before the plate is triggered again? I mean, otherwise it doesn't have time to reset, so it'll just stay pressed down.
My stray dogs often chase fire imps back into the magma pipe and then continue fighting while burning and drowning in the lava. Truly their loyalty knows no bounds, but perhaps it should.
